Short Creek Chapel c. 1944

A few weeks ago I was canoeing near Short Creek. My canoeing partner had grown up in the area and had been to more than a few "youth conferences" at the Short Creek Chapel. He gave me directions to exactly where the chapel was, but he wasn't sure it was still standing. So after we finshed our trip, I took a detour to see if it was still there. Sadly, there was nothing. Not even evidence that it was once there. If my directions were correct, there are only woods there now. Even so, I did pull this photo from a photo collage from 1944. The Short Creek branch appears to have been combined with the Linden Ward sometime between 1977 and 1983.
